and the republican governor, paul ryan's home state of wisconsin, scott walker. governors, welcome back to "meet the press," both of you. >> glad to be back. >> both states are pretty tight here, pretty remarkable is tight as well, good news for romney. a rrn hasn't won your state since 1984. and in colorado, governor hickenlooper, look at our latest polling from nbc news and marist. 48-48. i know talking to the obama campaign. i know they think it's not that close, but they know it's tight. governor hickenlooper, you start, what's decisive? what tips the scales in your state and in this election? >> well i think if you look at the mess that president obama inherited and i mean losing 800,000 jobs a month, month after month, the first few months of his presidency. he's turned it around, got 32 months of job creation, 5.2 million jobs. the national export initiative, exports were up 38%. i think people are going to hear that and i think they're going to recognize that governor romney's plan of adding $2 trillion to military spending and at the same time promising $5 trillion of tax cuts to largel
and paul ryan! and we need them right now. >> political analysts are confused. romney surrogate, fox and friends, tried to get christie to dial it back. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea, nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. i've got a job to do here in new jersey. it's much bigger than presidential politics and i could care less about any of that stuff. i have a job to do. i've got 2.4 million people out of power. i've got devastation on the shore. i've got floods in the northern part of my state. if you think right now i give a damn about presidential politics, then you don't know me. >> talk about a smackdown. yet despite christie -- some can't help but wonder will christie's newfound love for president obama tilt the election obama's way? talkback question for you, will sandy change the election? facebook.com/carolcnn. your responses later this hour. >>> hundreds are rescued in a northern new jersey town. we'll tell you how the city plans to rescue others who are still stranded t
. along with the economy. democrats have tried to link republicans to paul ryan's plans to turn medicare into a voucher program, something democrats say would be disastrous for seniors. republicans believe they have neutralized that message by arguing obama care hurts seniors by slashing medicare. redistricting will have a big impact, helping republicans. >> for the most part, republicans because they made such overwhelming gains not only in congress but in state legislatures last year, they were able to control the redistricting process in a lot of key states. for example, north carolina, where democrats will probably lose a couple seats this cycle. >> gop gains look likely in districts from north carolina to arkansas, among others. in fact, party operatives say they even put traditional blue states like rhode island and massachusetts into play. democrats are trying hard to unseat gop incumbents in blue states like california, new york, and illinois. and could see gains in maryland and florida. so why do these house races matter? members of congress will have to make big decisions in th
, wisconsin is leaning fairly heavily in president obama's favor. >> reporter: that's right. now, paul ryan has been seen as an asset, obviously, to governor romney and he has been making a whole lot of appearances. i'll tell you, the crowd behind me is getting excited, ashleigh, because air force one is taxing over towards us where president obama is going to be coming out shortly and making his remarks. yes, paul ryan has been an asset to governor romney. it's why some are saying the race here has been pretty tight, although there is a small lead, a consistent lead, for president obama. today we saw "wall street journ journal" nbc news poll, three points up the president is here in wisconsin. yesterday there was a poll in milwaukee, a marquette university poll that had the president up by much more, eight points. you talk to the obama campaign, they'll point to that marquette poll and they'll say it's more accurate. it seems likie internal polls ae in between the two. the bottom line, while he has a lead that is significant, you have to pay attention to it, it's not quite comfortable. tha
points. >> paul ryan is very popular in wisconsin. >> there three things. state changed between 2008 and 2010 that helped walker. then a huge battle over walker's plan. the recall effort forced republicans to build a great organization that has been turned over to the presidential campaign. polls are very close. paul ryan is added to the particular. nationally biggest thing he made people more enthusiastic about the ticket. in wisconsin, if the republicans pull it off, he may provide that little bit. >> sean: let's assume, we don't know what is going to happen in ohio. i would lean that ohio, i'm counting on ohio, but i think it will be close. if governor romney did win wisconsin and favored in colorado's colorado and you have new hampshire. >> new hampshire has a huge pool of independents. the independent voters swinging in romney's direction. >> a chance in iowa? >> he has a chance in iowa for the same reasons he does in wisconsin. pennsylvania and michigan and minnesota is possible. i think those are republican fantasies. >> sean: i think so. >> those states are not likely to go.
convention, right? and this is what he's doing. what would be nice for either paul ryan or mitt romney or some other large political figure within the republican party is to just do what barbara walters did which is to say, dude, stop it. you're embarrassing us, you're embarrassing the conversation, you're embarrassing the country and you need to stop it. instead, they're silenced. that silence bothers me. to me, it suggests that, it makes us uncomfortable but if it can get us votes, keep him around. people like him and ann coulter, we need to say, you need to go away because you're not part of the future that we want. >> we're going to have another segment on this and other outlandish things being said on the campaign trail. do you think more republicans should come out and say, please stop this, it's not productive? what do you think? >> i think the worst thing we could do for donald trump is not talk about him. i think that's what would hurt him the most. he was trying to help with mitt romney that, i don't think he achieved that. if he offers $5 million to charity and to self-depor
with vice presidential candidate paul ryan. and in florida, romney kept hammering home his message of a failed passed four years. >> he's asked what he's going do to get this economy going. we've had four debates, three presidential, one vice presidential. have you heard him lay out a plan yet as to what he's going to do to get this economy going? >> no! >> he wants four more years, but he's got no agenda. ♪ >> tonight want to let you know we'll bring you a special inside look at both these candidates. mitt romney revealed: family, faith, and the road to power. that's coming your way at 8:00 tonight eastern. and it will be followed by "obama revealed: the man, the president." you will get to see both candidates behind the scenes like never before tonight on cnn. >>> quite a scare for the family of florida republican senator marco rubio. while the senator was out campaigning with mitt romney, his daughter was involved in an accident involving a golf cart. she is 12 years old. she's amanda rubio. apparently she was visiting classmates had this accident happened. we're told she suff
're ready to build it again. mitt romney and paul ryan believe these hands hold our solutions. on election day let's vote for leaders who believe in american solutions, not more washington failures. >> you say that's one of the better ones. not the highest rated. >> you saw how the democrats reacted. what's amazing is it's bi-partisan. it highlights the fact that romney ryan can work with congress better than obama biden. that's why it's so good. >> sean: that was an effective point for romney in the debates when he said look, i was dealing with an 85% democratic state legislature. >> what's smart is this is america's future fund. they're focu focused not not - e right, the people in the center, the last remaining undecided. we've got a second ad for you. >> sean: real solutions. >> this is focused on the female vote. we've looked at a lot of different executions. this is the best female execution we've tested so far. >> we are america's women. we work hard, we raise kids, we teach, we inspire, we manage, we compete, and we don't settle. we find real solutions. >> right now 23 million amer
join running mate paul ryan on a tour of another swing state, ohio. the nominee will campaign in iowa, wisconsin, and new hampshire through tuesday. >>> breaking news not just on sandy but on the hawaiian tsunami advisory. stay with us for the latest and more about sandy's projected path, how you can help, go to our impact your world web site, cnn.com/impact. >>> and as we've seen, people are getting ready to evacuate from the path of the hurricane, as we saw in north carolina. people sticking around to ride this thing out. the issue is they're not all sure their homes will still be there when they return. here's a look at how people really up and down the east coast are preparing for what could be an historic storm. >>> one of the biggest concerns about this storm is that it is both a huge storm and a slow-moving storm. >> folks, this could be bad. really bad. it could impact us in several ways and for a long period of time. please take this as seriously as we are taking it. >> understand that this slow storm unlike some others that we've had is going to be -- is forecast to be a slo
and so will his running mate, paul ryan. are they trying to put pennsylvania in play, a move of strength or desperation. they have different answers on that one. >> we are going dig deeper into that later. gloves are off on the campaign trail. let's take a listen. >> in the closing weeks of the campaign, romney is using his talents as a salesman to dress up the very same policies that failed our country so badly. the same policies we have been cleaning up after these past four years and offering them up as change. >> a lot of people are hurting. they don't want to see another four years like the last four. do you want to see four more years with 23 americans struggling for good jobs? >> no! >> he took a break because of superstorm sandy, but now there's a lot of rhetoric. >> here is one reason why. take a look at this. the race is extremely tight right now. here is the national cnn poll. the survey is out over the last week and a half. average them together. it's as close as you can get. look at these numbers, colorado is one of the eight battleground states. a very, very close contest.
campaigning in ohio, he and paul ryan. at all three stops there, mitt romney was talking about the stops and his prayers for people in harm's way. take a listen. >> i know that right now, some people in the country are a little nervous about a storm, about to hit the coast and our thoughts and prayers are with the people who will find themselves in harm's way. >> reporter: romney today's got an event coming up in a few minutes in ohio. then it's on to iowa and then on to wisconsin as well. but his campaign is doing stuff to help people out back on the east coast, people being affected. andrea saul said in north carolina, new hampshire, pennsylvania and virginia, we'll be collecting supplies at our victory offices to deliver local storm relief. in virginia, we are loading storm relief supplies onto the romney bus to be delivered. it's not the same as going to a fema news conference like the president is doing. but romney is trying to do his part. >> cnn's political editor, paul steinhauser, for us live, thank you very much. for more on today's campaigning and how the storm is changing tho
to kick off the second event of the day in south florida. congressman paul ryan is in wisconsin. vice president joe biden attending rallies in florida and bill clinton is in iowa for the obama campaign, of course. let's bring in the political panel. david goodfriend and rachel smelkin. thank you both for your time. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> i want to get to this poll showing the president still holding on to his lead in ohio, florida and virginia. we know that when you look at national polls, depending on which one, a different picture but it is about the battlegrounds and likely voters here. what do we make of the new polls? >> hurricane sandy introduced a massive unknown in to the final days of the race and that's the first thing. we are not yet seeing that reflikted in the polling. having said that, it looks for the president's team like they're still holding on in ohio. the margins closed there as in other battleground states but that's an all-important state for both campaigns to win this election, mitt romney is almost going to have to win ohio if not he's going to have to
that somehow. >> i think paul ryan and mitt romney have done a very good job talking about what a real recovery looks like. what a recovery in the early 1980s began to look like when you are creating hundreds of thousands of jobs. not 150,000 jobs. or 100,000 jobs. i think people know what a recovery feels like around their own kitchen tables. that's why that ad that ran with the family just sitting in silence at dinner was so powerful during this election cycle because it was the anxiety that so many people feel, bill, regardless of politics. they know how their own family feels. >> bill: that's why governor romney is running strong in so many places. it's all about the economy. you don't disagree with me that libya is going to matter? no matter what comes out? >> well, i think it its actually played out already as far as the way the people think. i don't think we will learn anything else. the drip, drip, drip has been pretty interesting in the last few days. again, the press totally falling down. >> i think catherine herridge -- >> -- yeah, catherine, of course. >> bill: you know, look, there
know what direction we want to go. we want the paul ryan budget which cuts spending $6 trillion. the republicans in the house passed 24-plus bills that create jobs and opportunity and strip out regulations. we just need a president to sign this stuff. we don't need someone to think it up or design it. we have a house and a senate. the leadership now for the modern conservative movement for the next 20 years will be coming out of the house and the sfat. >> so what he's saying is all they really need is a waffler in chief. this is the republican vision for american leadership. do it our way and that's it. they reject any attempt to stimulate the economy or pass legislation to help create jobs in this country. they openly brag about that, you know, their plan is to make president obama a one-term president. they kill compromise deals, brokered between democrats and republicans. this is the party mitt romney will lead if he's president. he won't reach across the aisle. he'll turn his back on the folks on the other side of the aisle. and it will be more of the same. mitt romney has n
with paul ryan, you have a great team that is out there, ready to i think they can correct a lot of the problems we have had... i don't know. i just eye think it's kind of -- i hate to get too sim police --icismalistic. i have nothing against this fella that's in. vinothing against any of the people on the staff. i do -- i find -- in myself, feeling very resentful about the whole thing in benghazi. that's been kind of a tragedy that should have never happened or shouldn't have been an attempt. all you can ask when there is a crisis loo that is to make an attempt. that's the american way. >> sean: the you know, the thing that concerns me the most. i have been really blessed in this country. just reading a lot about you before the interview, i know you feel the same way about you can your career and your life. i followed your whole career. and i am a big fan. my parents grew up in the depression, it really bothers me to see one in six americans are in poverty, 25 million americans unemployed, 49 million americans on food stamps. and in four years, $6 trillion in new debt. we are go
. but the idea was all of the supporters here tonight supporting mitt romney and paul ryan and starting tomorrow morning they will all be in the different parts of the country probably mostly in the swing states. >> greta: is there any way to when he sure, ohio tonight? i know that everyone on the republican side says governor romney is going to win and everybody on president obama's side says he is going to win. how do you measure it tonigh >> i mean you know obviously, i guess an obama rally you would feel differently. at this rally it seems like he has enormous enthusiasm. this has the feeling of a winning campaign. the enthusiasm here tonight was tremendous. if this s a is swing state i feel good about it even if the polls about even and even if obama has a lead of one or two i suspect the undecided votes are going to go to mitt romney. i have a pretty good feeling about ohio. and if he wins ohio, i think he wins and maybe president obama could feel the same way about it. this is probably the key state. >> greta: why do you all leave, ohio, and spread out across the country? why don't you al
of them to come vote for our team. paw rye paul ryan and i want to bring real change to america. so some folks are putting aside the demands of daily life and focusing on this campaign. they want to know what the future is going to hold depending on who becomes the next president. who's going to affect their life and their family's life and who is going to affect the country in the way it will make the greatest difference. you can remind them that words are cheap. you can say whatever you want to say in a campaign. but what you can achieve, results, those are earned. those can't be faked. you see, four years ago you could remind them that candidate obama made a number of promises. then go and look at the promises and say how did they do on those? he was going to be a post partisan president. he's been most partisan in dividing -- >> we'll keep an eye on mitt romney's speech in iowa. poppy, that seems like guy problem to have. in des moines and other parts of iowa, the unemployment rate is very low. they can't find workers. but that's also not ideal for them. >> reporter: right. no, it's
shot of the morning, paul ryan sticking with a halloween tradition. they took their three kids out around the neighborhood in wisconsin. same place he trick-or-treated as a child, full circle. ryan's 10 year old daughter dressed up as katy perry and sons a goblin and ghost and witch . >> gretchen: we did a creative idea in connecticut. you can't just avoid. my tears were -- kids were in tears. trunk or treating. a creating idea. we pull would up the car. the only person in town with power. luckily for her. and opened up the trunk and dumped it in the trunk. they went from car to car can still came home with a big box. >> thice thing to make the day. >> gretchen: it was great. >> steve: we told you about governor christie moving halloween to next monday and talking to the mayor of frank linn lakings. i don't know that we are going to have treats cleaned by now and there will be more power lines and talked to him about what he will do with the election. there were one or two polling places that didn't have generators. they had to figure it out. fox news polls out that show that voter
. governor romney, together with paul ryan has put forward an economic recompry plan consisting of five central elements that will in four years create 12 million jobs. as you know, there are many people who take exception to that. he goes on to list those five elements. i'll do them in a nutshell, achieve north american energy independence, retrain the workforce for jobs now, make trade work for america, restore fiscal sanity, we'll champion small business. can this, in fact, in four years, you believe, decree aeight 12 million jobs? and i'll warn you, ali velshi is going to say no possible way. go ahead. >> well, we don't have to guess. we can look when ronald reagan had a recession, which had double digit inflation, 20% interest rate, in many ways much more devastating, higher unemployment, much more devastating than the one that obama has, when you went out three years plus, the same length of time that obama's had since we've been in technical recovery, the economy grew 20%. obama has grown 7%. a third the strength of reagan's. job creation much higher under reagan. what did reagan
, of course, surrogates such as bill clinton, joe biden, paul ryan and marco rubio will be fanned out across the country in these closing days of the campaign. >> mark, thank you. >>> at the bottom of the hour, we'll get analysis of the final days from our political experts in residence, cnn contributor ana navarro and rick sack re socarides and live coverage will begin at 6:00 p.m. eastern time. >> five days to go. >>> surveying the damage, president obama gets a firsthand look at the devastation caused by sandy in new jersey. we'll take you live to belmar right on the jersey shore.

the president. that paper endorse ed barack oba in 2008. and we're getting late word that mitt romney and paul ryan will kick off a four-day tour starting on friday. they'll be joined by their wimps and some 100 other surrogates will be standing out around the country, condoleezza rice, bobby jindal and senator marco rubio of florida. >> talk about a final push. >> we guarantee it for barack obama, too, we just don't have the details yet. and tuesday is election night. finally you will want to join cnn's live coverage of election night in america beginning at 6:00 p.m. eastern time. it's upon us. next tuesday night. >> in the dark with candles. hopefully not. back to our starting point this morning. states from north carolina are still dealing with power outages from superstorm sandy. cory booker has been out on the streets of newark, new jersey, helping residents there. also taking requests. he joins us by phone now. what do you think the biggest problem is in your state? is it power outages? >> well, definitely the power outages. we're starting to get back to many residents but we still have
with romney. this is a surprise to many people watching. a lot of people including me thought the paul ryan pick would open up an opportunity to demagog with the obama campaign and peel off older voters. it has not. abortion hasn't worked very well as an issue for the obama campaign. you saw it highlighted during the democratic convention and the idea was it would peel off college educated female voters and increase the gender back. the gender gap has shrunk by half in the past month, that is pretty good news for the romney campaign. martha: let's take a look at florida which is the last on the list we have in front of us -- have, excuse me. it says 49-47 quinnipiac. when you talk to some strategists they have already been fairly confident about virginia, about north carolina and about florida for mitt romney supporters. i guess the question is at this point how much stock do we put in these polls and how much do we put in sort of the feeling on the ground and the feeling people are getting in different states? >> the striking thing about this election is how little anyone knows. typically
presidential candidate paul ryan was here. we'll also be seeing, of course, president obama here today. you know, it's really interesting. something i want to point out, charles woodson of the green bay packers will be here to rally this crowd here at the airport ahead of president obama. he is the safety for the green bay packers. if you know about football, what does the safety do? they protect against long passes against, that's right, the hail mary, something the obama campaign is trying to do here in wisconsin. >> i like that football metaphor. i don't usually follow them all that closely. but thank you, brianna. appreciate it. little bit of a rough morning. traffic was terrible for you. >> yes. >> plus that three person rule. >> we had to drive around brooklyn, pick up cnn employees to hit the carpool rule. >> what a mess. thank you for being here. >> thanks for tolerating my lateness. >> we had an empty chair in honor of you. >> today is the day. >> let's bring in senator robert m menendez. there was a tour with the president and chris christie, taking a look at some of the really ha
on brave fronts, obviously. today paul ryan's going to be going to colorado, and then they're going to work back to wisconsin and end up on ohio on friday with a big rally there. i don't know how this plays out. my own instinct is, in reading everything that i am, talking to all the campaigns, it's too close to call at this point. i think we're going to have a very long night. this is one more demonstrati demonstration -- i know you're tired of me saying this, an unforeseen impact. and there are other things that could go awry and in some way affect this. but i do think it froze the campaign for romney. he had momentum going. and then everything went on hold for a while. and what the impact of that will be come tuesday, it's hard to know. but it is a reminder of we work best when we work together on things when there's a big challenge. and these challenges go well beyond what happened with sandy. >> let's cover it all. president obama is pledging quick relief for the millions of victims of hurricane sandy. today he's scheduled to arrive in atlantic city to survey the damage alongside govern
and paul ryan. and we need them right now. right now i'm much more concerned about preventing any other loss of life, getting people to safe places. then we'll worry about the election. the election will take care of itself. i've spoke to the president three times yesterday. he's been incredibly supportive and helpful to our state. not once did he bring up the election. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea. nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. i've got a job to do here in new jersey that's much bigger than presidential politics. and i could care less about any of that stuff. i have a job to do. i have 2.4 million people out of power. i've got devastation on the shore. i've got floods in the northern part of my state. if you think right now i give a darn about presidential politics, then you don't know me. >> yeah. he's a strong, strong guy. only an hour ago after his tour with the president he's got a great working relationship with the president. they've been working incredibly closely ov
